Outlook Express not responding

  chub_tor 19:32 08 Aug 2004

I emptied the Deleted files folder and now Outlook Express 6 starts but all the buttons are missing, all the folders are blank and I just get the egg timer spinning round. The top bar will say Outlook express not responding if I click on close and then a reqest to send the failure information to Microsoft.
Can anyone help?

SFC didn't cure the failure to load problem that was caused by a corrupt inbox.dbx. I have moved the old inbox to another location while I attempt to repair it - if anyone knows of a freeware programme to do that I would be most grateful. In the meantime I am back to almost a blank inbox and no I didn't back it up - didn't know that you could but I am older and wiser know!
SFC did however repair another problem with Outlook Express where I had some spurious icons in the toolbar.
Thanks JoeC
